About Tableau



Tableau is a data visualization and "business intelligence" software. It has many of the same functions as MS Excel, but its visualization features are much superior. Tableau does have a free version: Tableau "Public," although this version lacks many features of the proprietary software. Nevertheless, Tableau Public does have many resources and can create remarkable visualizations.
